The GPS points to a spot in the middle of the street, but I looked all over and couldn't find the mark. The Lat/Lon coordinates on the data sheet lead to a point about 100 feet south of Arkansas Lane on Westchester Drive. It is my opinion that the mark has probably been destroyed.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in June 1991.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
  • The dynamic height is computed by dividing the NAVD 88 geopotential number by the normal gravity value computed on the Geodetic Reference System of 1980 (GRS 80) ellipsoid at 45 degrees latitude (G = 980.6199 gals.).
  • The modeled gravity was interpolated from observed gravity values.
